Casino Facilities

Casino Facilities Information:

Since 2008, the AGLC Board has been deferring consideration of new casino and Racing Entertainment Centre (REC) licences.
At its meeting on January 22, 2015, the Board decided to extend this moratorium indefinitely. Therefore, at this time, the AGLC is not accepting applications for new casino or REC facilities.

In Alberta, there are currently 24 casino facilities throughout the province. The expansion of gaming is carefully managed and controlled. Even though the majority of casinos are privately owned and operated, all requests for new facilities as well as the expansion and relocation of existing facilities must be approved and licensed by the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission.


To request approval for a tournament associated with a table game operation, the casino facility licensee must submit a Casino Tournament Approval Application to the AGLC.

Table game tournaments (such as Texas hold 'em, blackjack, etc.) may be legally conducted only by licensed casino facility operators.
